Great Falls Paterson New Jersey

under the bridge

The Great Falls of Paterson is one of the hidden jewels of New Jersey. From the late 19th century into the mid 20th century these fall provided hydro electric power for industry in Paterson including silk mills and a railroad locomotive factory. Now they are among the most scenic falls in the United States and little known to people outside northern New Jersey. They have recently been made a National Park and the grounds are being prepared to show off the beauty of the Falls.

I have been photographing the Falls for years in all seasons and in all weather. These photos were taken this spring one early April morning when I was entranced by the rainbows reflecting in the mist of the falls.
